treats, treats and more treats!

Did you know it’s National Dessert Day? Thank goodness for social media or else how would we keep track of all these fabulous “holidays” 🙂 I’m currently trying to decide what to make later today but here are a few goodies that sound irresistible!

** These little chocolate salted shortbread bites sound so yummy!

** Caramel + apples + cheesecake? Has to be a winner in my book!

** I’m not a brownie lover (gasp! I know!) but blondies speak to me. These sound so so good. They might be the winner today as I bet I have all the ingredients!

** These are by far the BEST chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made. Probably because it uses brown butter. Make these. Make these now! Also I can’t WAIT to get my hands on her new cookbook! The cake on the cover? Swoon.

** Then this cake. I mean seriously?! How gorgeous is it? This is one of my new blog finds and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites!

Hello Friday!

Happy Friday! An round up of a few things I’m loving this week. It’s supposed to be COLD here this weekend {think high of 20˚!} but I’m looking forward to hitting Costco and spending the rest of the weekend hanging out at home and rooting for the Broncos and hoping for lots and lots of snow. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Have you heard of Becky Higgins and Project Life? I’ve been following her for a few years now but this is the first year I’m jumping in to scrapbook. I’m super excited, I used to LOVE scrap booking and am looking forward to this new way of doing things. I’d been holding out for the Seafoam edition and I got notice from Amazon that it shipped today. Yay! Go check out all her awesome products, she’s rolling out a ton more in May. I think this will be even more fun to do once we start a family but for now I’m looking forward to documenting our every day life and the fun things that we do. Plus it’s a great way to get all our pictures off my computer and printed! If you don’t want something that is quite so time consuming Shutterfly offers a few Project Life options as well! I made one for last year and I love it.

Have you heard of War Horse? It is playing here in Denver and we were lucky enough to score some free tickets courtesy of Yelp {yay for being an elite member!} for opening night. I truly wasn’t sure what I was going to think but I walked away from the show quite impressed. I won’t give anything away but the puppetry is incredible. If you have the opportunity to go see it, go!

I’ll leave you with this incredible looking treat. How awesome doe it look? I can’t wait until I find a reason to make it! Find the recipe here!

Enjoy your weekend! Hopefully I’ll have a Project Life sneak peek next week.
